Did the fvf go up?

Curious, I sold a listing via Google organic and the final value fee came to 5% rather than 3.5%.

I always thought it was still at 3.5% with Google organic and Bing.



Small purchase totalling $9.95 before shipping. Weird thing is that I have 12% off coupon running but I guess the buyer did not apply the coupon.

no…the fee is 3.5% or a minimum of $0.50

Since 3.5% of $9.95 is $0.35 you were charged the minimum of $0.50, which is 5% of $9.95

I rarely have customers see the coupon at the top of the page…and rarely do they use them

Oops. Forgot about the minimum.

I wish I had more that did not see the coupon. This is the first one.


I have two 20% off coupons and my customers take advantage of both of them and with some of my products the final fee gets waived

Hello Allthings. Curious to know why some of the final fees get waived. I guess it must be the link you share on social sites that Bonanza provides to each individual seller by any chance? Thanks.

And they come to your listing to buy via that link?

Sharon..if your sells through bonanza promotions (look under advertising) part or all of the fee can be waived. I had a sale with a waived fee not to long ago that came from bonanza promotions…

Ohh..and I actually saw one of my items being advertised on a website…a couple of days ago…

Thanks Cindy. When u say look under advertising do u mean this will show me if Bonanza is promoting some of my listing all on their own? Sorry, I’m just trying to understand
